Panellists’ Comments: “A fabulous course deservedly returned to The Open roster”; “An Open course whose distinctive narrow fairways and deep rough provide the visiting golfer with a stern and comprehensive test of their golfing skills”; “The greens and run offs were particularly good, very fast and true” “a course that sits very well with its location and it
flows very naturally across the landscape utilising all the local topography of
the dunes has to offer to provide a course full of well shaped holes.”
